Blazing Saddles..

Was the answer to last night’s movie quote question. My brother in Oregon wins the prize. He gets to fly at his expense to New Jersey and pick blueberries in the hot summer sun. I promise to provide cold beer AFTER the berries are picked.  If he picks his share, I will even send him home with some. How generous is that?  The blueberry season is upon us here in New Jersey. The fields to the south and west of us (away from the ocean) have been producing local fruit for the grocery store and farmers markets for the last two weeks. The blueberries in our garden are holding their own, meaning that they are not yet ripe. I picked my first cucumber today. We will have it tomorrow night with dinner.

Dinner tonight was veal chops with a basil – mustard sauce. The recipe can be found here. The sauce turned out well. I doubled the recipe so we have leftovers to use with some other meal. Along with our veal chops we had sauteed zucchini, mashed potatoes and jumbo lump crab meat. The crab meat was served on a chilled plate as finger food. My DW was my assistant tonight. She kept the dirty things moving off the counter and into the dishwasher.

DS2 was working the afternoon into evening shift. The grocery store on LBI was full of vacation people today. He said he was quite busy. DS3 worked the 8 to 5 shift. He spent 5 hours in the pool room watching dogs play in the water. His shoes were damp when he came home. I put his nasty lacrosse gear out on the hot tub today to dry out. Tonight when he came home he took them all to the cellar to be run through the washing machine, twice.

DS1 went out with friends last night. He did not sleep here. He was rushing around the house at 7 am this morning before going off to work. He must have looked bad (he did when he got home) because his boss sent him home early. He had dinner and watched some tv until 7:30 when the MLL Lacrosse All-Star game came on the tv. We invaded his space to watch the game and he went to bed.

Tonight’s pictures have captions to tell the tale. Enjoy!
